Saturday skate update

Based on this morning’s skate, it appears that Dustin Penner will be scratched, along with Davis Drewiske and Kevin Westgarth. Yesterday, Penner walked around after practice with a large ice bag, and Terry Murray mentioned an upper-body injury but indicated it wasn’t serious. Perhaps it is, although Penner did participate in today’s morning skate. Brad Richardson is slotted to go back in after a one-game absence and, as expected, Jonathan Quick starts in goal.

[UPDATE: Penner’s absence is being attributed to a hand injury. Penner had an ice bag on his hand in the locker room after practice yesterday. Murray said Penner’s status is “more than day-to-day.]
